On arrival in Kathmandu it is very overwhelming as there are so many agents to choose from. Discovery World Trekking stood out for me with their professional setup and this standard was applied and maintained throughout all aspects of my trip with them. They cater to your personal level and wants and will customise your trip around all of these. Thank you for the great experience I will definitely be back again!

We chose to trek to Annapurna Base Camp with Discovery World Trekking and had a fantastic time. From the very beginning, Paul the CEO ensured excellent communication and was highly knowledgeable responsive in answering all questions and queries we had before embarking on such a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. The trip was very well-organised and the logistics were executed expertly. It is clear that Paul's experience in organising this type of trip is of the highest calibre.Paul supplied us with a fantastic team of a guide (Dol) and three porters (Amrit, Ganesh and Gakul), all of whom were super friendly, approachable and great fun to be around. They carried our luggage and fed us very interesting bits of information about the trekking route which made it even more magical. Plenty of photos were taken on the way so the memories will last a lifetime.Everything about the trek was stress-free. We were supplied with hot meals 3x per day, clean and comfortable accommodation and purified drinking water throughout.We were absolutely thrilled to all successfully reach Annapurna Base Camp. The weather was clear and the views were spectacular. I cannot recommend trekking with Discovery World Trekking enough. Thanks Paul and team for giving us such an incredible experience of your beautiful country.

“Discovery World Trekking for Top Everest Base CampTrek”It is my pleasure to write a review for Discovery World Trekking (DWT). My husband, son and myself recently did the Everest Base Camp Trek with Discovery World Trekking. I have to say that it was one of the best experiences of our lives! We loved all of it – from the sights and sounds of Thamel to the thrilling flight to Lukla, the spectacular views on the mountain, the good hearty food and the amazing people of Nepal. After much research I had chosen to book with Discovery World Trekking based on their great reviews, the quick replies and attention given to us by Paul – the CEO of the company – and the fair price. What appealed to me as well was the fact that it is a local company. I wanted to cut out the middleman and contribute more to the local economy. We received a warm welcome at the airport by Paul and Dol our guide. After being driven to our hotel, Paul briefed us on all the details of the trek and Dol made sure we had all that was needed for the trek (quality sleeping bags, …). They even helped us get sim cards for our phones! During our Trek we were presented with some unexpected challenges but the expert troubleshooting, support and excellent guidance we received by both Paul and our truly amazing guide Dol made what could have been a very bad experience actually wonderful! Anyone can guide an uneventful trek but its when things don’t go as planned that you need to be with a company and guide that know what they are doing and have the right resources. I am convinced that any other company would have had us descend without meeting our objective of reaching EBC but DWT went over and above to ensure that we were all safe and happy. From the moment we landed in Kathmandu to the moment we returned to the airport for our return flights we were in great hands. I can’t tell you how fortunate we feel that we chose DWT for our trip and I am already dreaming of going back to experience more of this beautiful country and will no doubt be using DWT. We consider Paul I recommend Discovery World Trekking 100%. Diane from Montreal, Canada
